Extraterrestrial Life Fooled

2020) | Frame, speaker, MP3 player, audio loop

In 1977 a golden record was sent into space with the Voyager 2 space probe by NASA. In 2020 it left our Solar system to enter the interstellar medium. Apart from sounds and music from planet Earth it contained 108 images to show potential extraterrestrial intelligent life who we are.


40 years ago there was no way to digitalize these images so they decided to transfer the images into sound, in a very odd way. The images were captured by an analoge videocamera and the output data was transferred into sound.
